Pledge house. Brooke is on Hotmail when Mackenzie comes in. Brooke admits that Tim was totally asking her out, but she didn't want to tell Nicole because she'd flip, and also it wouldn't get her to stop talking to him anyway. Good fucking point. Maggie walks in, and they tell her. Her Gigantic Boobies of Hatred drop in disbelief. Brooke: "But I didn't even do anything!" Brooke camera-prisses that she wasn't going to say anything, but then it would seem like she was hiding something. More talky-talky between the girls. Mackenzie hates Tim and hates that Nicole still likes him.
Uno's. Nicole has cleared the entire restaurant with her talk of Tim, so only Natalie is left. Nicole is now crying. Natalie breaks it down and explains to Nicole that what Tim said was meant to show Nicole that they're not together. Really. They're so not together. Kristen Scott Thomas and I are dating just as much as she and Tim are. Me and Britney Spears are as much an item. "But I don't understand why he would do that," Nicole says again. I'm so fucking done with her, man. Seriously. Nicole then says she has a feeling that she and Tim are going to be something when the whole pledging thing is over. Yeah, they're going to be two people who aren't together.
Parking lot. Natalie walks away, done. Nicole calls Tim from her car, telling us, unbelievably, that in getting to know Tim she's come to realize that he might just be a "typical guy." Noooooooo! I can't believe Tim is answering the phone. Alex sits next to him. They're both sort of laughing the whole time. Nicole goes on about how it's cool that they wanted to hang with Brooke and Melissa, but she felt like she should have been included. Tim rolls his eyes. Nicole camera-insanes that Tim knows now that he's overstepped his bounds. Nicole goes on that if Tim wants to hang with the sisters, she should be there too.
